Gofundme Description:
On Wednesday, November 4, Ian was involved in a tragic snorkeling accident and passed away on the island of Grand Turk in Turks and Caicos. As anyone can imagine, our lives have been completely turned upside down by this heartbreaking loss, but arrangements have to be made to lay Ian to rest properly. While it has already been a crazy difficult time communicating internationaly, we are now, at this time, ready to bring him home. Ian has been taken care of by the funeral home in Grand Turk, but because this terrible accident occured outside of the United States, business is done backwards.

Snorkeling Death I Wish I Could Stay Here Forever Donation Requests On Wednesday, November 4, Ian was involved in a tragic snorkeling accident and passed away on the island of Grand Turk in Turks and Caicos.

Anyone who has had to go through taking care of arrangements for a loved one who has passed knows that a death certificate is the key to moving forward in any and all processes. However, Grand Turk will not send a death certificate until the funeral home is paid for taking care of and sending Ian home. Ian's family, children, and loved ones all knew of his wishes for cremation, but having to take care of this internationally has put a halt on all arrangements until payment has been recieved.

At this point, we are stuck, and my mom, Aleta, is reaching out to all of Ian's family and friends. To everyone who's lives were touched by his, for everyone he's picked up lunch for, or if he fixed your air conditioning last summer. If you've ever sat and enjoyed one of his favorite beers while watching a game, or were subject to his vast array of useless knowledge and corny jokes. If he came to repair your heat in the dead of winter and hung around just to chat, or if he's ever lended a hand to help you out. If Ian cared for you and you for him, we are reaching out to you, because we need your help bringing him home.

Ian was insistant on having his photo taken in front of the sign: "I WISH I COULD STAY HERE FOREVER," but I'm positive that he never imagined it like this. We need him home now so that we can lay him to rest, and so that everyone who loved him can pay their respects and honor his life and what he meant to all of us. Please consider helping in any way that you can.

*All donations go directly an account we have set up for it own to facilitate payment to Grand Turk.
